    installing USB in pre USB era PC

    Locked

    by gwynnes1 ·

    TI Extensa 660CDT notebook PC, 1996 vintage, upgraded to Win 98SE. I tried to install PCMCIA USB card in the PC (The PC does have CardBus support); after installing the software for the card, a message saying that USB support was blocked by the BIOS. The BIOS is Phoenix ver. 4.05, 1996 and no updated BIOS is available for this PC. Looking at the BIOS, no mention of USB can be found. Is there any way around this problem?
